Essential Truths of the Christian Faith by RC Sproul
March 24, 2016
RC Sprouls book, Essential Truths of the Christian Faith, is a balanced, concise and easy to read guide of 102 Christian doctrines. Each chapter is about 2 pages long and contain Scripture proofs at the end of the chapter with a brief point by point summary of the discussion. His analogies and illustrations help open up the Word and the truths he is discussing. These chapters are so short that they would make excellent daily readings with your daily Bible reading. The next doctrinal book to consider would be Louis Berkhof's Manual of Christian Doctrine or J I Packer's Concise Theology. But if you just want to stay with reading Sproul for now, read Everyone's A Theologian.
I was receiving the e-devotional for this book and liked it so much I had to order the book itself. Bravo to Sproul for a book that is easy to understand and clear on what is necessary in my faith. I am thoroughly enjoying it. Thank you.
In this book, Dr. Sproul clearly presents the essential doctrines of the Christian faith. Even though the book is written from a Calvinist and Presbyterian perspective, Arminians and other sound evangelicals can benefit. This book does include some Presbyterian and Calvinist beliefs, however, it also covers all of the doctrines that are essential to being within the True Church. "In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity". God Bless.
